Many thanks to outgoing editors Robin James and Eric Weisbard for selecting my talk as exemplary of the online style of conference presentations that COVID-19 generated, among several other presentations.
Also, congratulations to one of the incoming editors to the Journal of Popular Music Studies, my purple friend and one of the core four: Elliott H. Powell!
